While not mandated, measuring a flower, extract, or product's terpene profile is critical to understanding and improving the treatment of patients. Without this information, our knowledge will be significantly handicapped. The science surrounding our industry is rapidly developing, and understanding the chemical profile is considered essential to strain identifications and expected effects for the patients. Terpenoids have distinct pharmacological effects that need to be matched with other chemical therapeutic effects to maximize medicinal benefits.
A more informed cultivator may be interested in the unique terpene profile of different flowers; and the subsequent relationship between terpenes and the flavors and effects of each particular strain of botanical. GCA Labs, with its state-of-the-art instrumentation, is fully equipped to run the following complete terpene testing profile.
